Dim Mak is an independent, Los Angeles-based record label, events company, and lifestyle brand founded by Steve Aoki in 1996. The label has released music in punk, indie rock, hardcore, hip hop, and electronic dance music. The label is driven by Aoki's "Do It Yourself" ethos and the company's "By Any Means Necessary" slogan.[citation needed]

Dim Mak has promoted The Chainsmokers, The Bloody Beetroots, Max Styler, Bloc Party, The Kills, Battles, The Gossip, Klaxons, MSTRKRFT, Felix Cartal, and many more. In 2014, the label made its 500th release with the King Babies EP from The Death Set. Dim Mak's roster includes releases by Garmiani, Ookay, Botnek, Autoerotique, Rain Man, Henry Fong, Morten, Keys N Krates, and Dirtyphonics.

History[edit]

In 1996, Steve Aoki founded Dim Mak and developed it into an independent record label and music lifestyle brand. Responsible for launching the careers of seminal acts such as Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, The Chainsmokers, Deorro, Keys N Krates among others. [1]

Early years[edit]

Steve Aoki started Dim Mak Records in 1996 at the age of 19, out of his college apartment at the University of California, Santa Barbara.[2] The label's first release was a 7-inch record by a hardcore punk band called Stickfigurecarousel.[3] The name Dim Mak is a reference to Bruce Lee's martial art Death Touch technique.[4] Prior to launching Dim Mak, Aoki was heavily involved in the local hardcore punk scene. He wrote for a small zine and would constantly receive demos and albums to review. At the same time, he began hosting punk and hardcore shows in the living room of his college apartment, which came to be known as The Pickle Patch.[5] Hundreds of acts played there in exchange for a place to sleep for the night, including The Rapture, Jimmy Eat World, Atom & His Package, and more.[6] The relationships formed throughout these formative years served as a crucial foundation for what would later become Dim Mak Records. In 2001, Dim Mak released one of the label's first nationally recognized projects with the self-titled debut EP from Pretty Girls Make Graves. Following the success of this record along with The Kills’ Black Rooster in 2002, Aoki relocated Dim Mak to Los Angeles and began to usher in the label's second era.

Indie rock era[edit]

In 2003, Dim Mak began to develop a new roster of indie rock artists, beginning with the U.K. band Bloc Party. After mailing Aoki a 7-inch of their track "She's Hearing Voices", the group signed to Dim Mak Records.[2] Shortly afterwards, Dim Mak entered into a partnership with VICE (a subsidiary of Atlantic Records), for the rights to Bloc Party, marking Dim Mak’s first deal with a major label. Together, Dim Mak and Atlantic released Bloc Party's debut album Silent Alarm in 2005, which went on to sell over 350,000 physical albums.[3]

Subsequently, during this era Dim Mak released indie/dance projects from Battles, Blood Brothers, The Gossip, Klaxons, and Scanners.

Electro era[edit]

As underground dance music began incorporating (which was coined electro at the time), Dim Mak shifted with the times and entered its electro era.[2] Steve Aoki had become more involved in DJing parties. The label signed The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT, Autoerotique, Felix Cartal, Shinichi Osawa, amongst other acts associated with the electro scene. One of the biggest tracks of this era came when Steve Aoki collaborated with The Bloody Beetroots for "Warp 1.9", the lead single off their debut album Romborama. Thump placed the track at #19 on their 101 Best EDM Songs of All Time list and called it 'Perhaps the definitive track from that particularly fruitful period of hook-laden abrasiveness.'[7] Around the same time, Dim Mak released an album from MSTRKFRT titled Fist of God, which brought major pop and hip-hop collaborators into the electro scene.[8] The record featured collaborations with Ghostface Killah, N.O.R.E., Freeway, and John Legend.

Present[edit]

Off the success of "Warp" and Steve Aoki's solo DJ career, Dim Mak continued to sign and break numerous electronic dance music producers like Azari & III, Datsik, Zedd, Ookay, Borgore, and several others.

In 2014, Dim Mak discovered a budding New York DJ duo called The Chainsmokers and launched their debut single "#SELFIE". The track became an international phenomenon and was certified platinum in over 5 countries (including the US), leading to Universal/Republic signing the group to a seven-figure deal.

Dim Mak signed again with Keys N Krates, a three-piece live electronic act from Toronto. Their 2013 single "Dum Dee Dum" racked up over 200 million combined views on YouTube and the single went onto achieve an R.I.A.A. Gold certification in the US.

New Noise[edit]

New Noise is Dim Mak's new music discovery imprint that focuses on cutting-edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. Launched in 2010, New Noise got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and crew. By 2015, the platform evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download platform based on singles.[9][10] Ghastly's underground house single "Every Night" was the first release under this format.[11] As of 2016, New Noise's current incarnation is a copyright free model that allows the budding community of Twitch gamers and amateur YouTube content creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams sans purchase or fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.[12]

Events[edit]

Dim Mak events have featured performances from a diverse range of acts such as Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, Skrillex, Rae Sremmurd, Kid Cudi, Zedd, Lady Gaga, Waka Flocka Flame, Will.i.am, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Justice, Afrojack, Travis Scott, Bloc Party, Borgore, Yellow Claw, and Steve Angello.

Notes[edit]

Some Steve Aoki releases are co-released alongside Ultra Records as well as Dim Mak Records, however, they are officially categorized under the Ultra Records discography, it is also the same for other artists such as The Bloody Beetroots.

A release by the artist Tai entitled "Indian Kill EP" was removed from digital download in early 2013 as its title was seen as offensive.
